The 2008/09 Nordic Combined World Cup season (official sponsor name: DKB FIS World Cup ) began on November 29, 2008 in Kuusamo, Finland and ended on March 15, 2009 in Vikersund . There were planned to take place 26 World Cup competitions, but the two competitions in Liberec had to be canceled due to lack of snow. A replacement competition was held in Seefeld instead of the planned team competition. The highlight of the season was the Nordic World Ski Championships 2009 , in which four competitions were held.
For the 2008/09 season, some changes were decided: Instead of the various disciplines, which often led to confusion, there should only be one competition format. This includes a jump and then a run of 10 kilometers. At the World Championships in Liberec, however, a mass start competition was also on the program. According to the statutes, at least one competition in this format had to be held in the World Cup. This took place in Val di Fiemme, with a run of 10 kilometers and then two jumps.
The International Ski Federation transferred the strategic responsibility for the Nordic Combined to the ski jumping race director, Walter Hofer . Ulrich Wehling remained race director in the Nordic combined, but was only responsible for the operational implementation. Furthermore, the promotion and relegation between A and B World Cup has been abolished.
